Finally Friday!

I can't tell you how happy I am that it's Friday! I'm always so happy on Fridays because tomorrow is Saturday, and you really can't beat that!

As part of Foodbuzz's Tastemaker Program, I was sent some products from Special K to review.

Low fat granola and fruit crisps.

I haven't tried out the granola yet, but I've been snacking on the fruit crisps for a few days. They come in packages of two, and they are 100 calories per package.

They are pretty fragile and break at the slightest movement.

It's pretty worth it though, because the cracks make for good food pictures.

I received the strawberry flavor, and I really liked them! I particularly enjoyed how much fruit filling was in each bite. The fruit crisps weren't very hard. In fact, I thought they had a nice texture of crispiness that made them taste fresh.

They only thing I wasn't thrilled about was that it wasn't a very filling snack. I'm not sure if I would buy them based on that fact alone. I ate these a lot during work before lunch, and they never held me over, despite the fact that they tasted awesome.

I'm so excited for this weekend!

The husband and I are spending time with my mom, which will be really nice.

Question of the Day:
What's your favorite filling snack?

My favorite filling snack is a piece of fruit. If I'm going for a snack that has volume and fills me up, I'd definitely say popcorn.

Until next time!

I, like most bloggers, love bars for snacks. Luna bars are my fav. I also like hummus and crackers :)

I love the raw Lara Bars. They are delicious, even my girls eat them.

Larabars, or some yogurt and fruit. Those don't look filling enough for me!

My favorite snack is a bar of cereal. Those special K crisps do look good, though.

I try to stay away from prepackaged snacks as much as possible. My favorite snack is probably a sandwich thin with a tbsp of peanut butter and sugar free jelly. It's around 200 calories and great workout fuel!

I am really excited its Friday, but alas I have a very busy weekend. Hope you have a wonderful time!!

My husband makes the best homemade popcorn - I am sure its got tons of butter and Parmesan cheese on it, that's why!

How many carbs in those strawberry things? I usually stay away from those because of the high carb count.

Have an awesome weekend!!

I think Fig Newton makes a similar bar. I agree, a snack has to be able to get you to your next meal otherwise it's not doing it's job!

Have a great weekend with your Mom!
